Luxury holidays in Tortola
When to go
For those who a white Christmas is far from ideal, Tortola is a sunny refuge, so it’s at its busiest and most expensive over the festive season. Visit from September to November and you’ll notice a decline in prices.
PlanesIt’s easiest to ‘hop’ over to Tortola from the US, but you’ll first have to pass through Sint Maarten, St Thomas or Puerto Rico (all of which can be reached direct from major US cities); those flying from further afield will be looking at two stopovers. You’ll land at Tortola’s Terrance B. Lettsome International Airport on Beef Island.
BoatsA public ferry runs from Red Hook in St Thomas to Road Town in Tortola; the journey takes around an hour.
AutomobilesYou could simply stay on one sunlounger throughout the whole trip if you wish, but this – the largest of the British Virgin Islands – is peppered with beauty spots and intriguing relics from the past, so it’s worth securing some wheels and adventuring.
